They've really got some good commercials for WoW.  I'm partial to Mr T, but they're all pretty good.

did the store you bought it at have more copies?  It might be quicker just to return it to them.

Random thoughts:

I find it humorous that the sensor upgrades for your weapons can be more powerful than the Makos sensors.  Whenever I got the 'jammed' radar I'd just stop, pop out and almost always be able to get a clear radar reading. 

One thing they really need to do for ME2 is re-design the inventory screen- it needs an option to sort your upgrades by type when selling or a way to sort them alphabetically.

I found most of the upgrades useless.  Other than the scanners, organic or synthetic bullets, one of the stabilizers that did 3 different things and Medical ones I really didn't use them.

The decrypting mini game seemed to be really random.  At times everything would have only 3 button presses and other times even Easy ones would have 6.

Apparently you can only have 9,999,999 credits.

Did anyone else find any prothean artifacts that looked like a metal sphere, if you did the mission for the Asari consort, she gives you a trinket that allows you to open them and reveal some interesting data about the protheans running experiments on early man.

I just found one of those, were there more?  I didn't do alot of planet exploring unless something popped up on the map or radar.

I finished as a Renegade Infiltrator-  did the lesbian tango with Liarra, sacrificed Kaiden, hit Wrex with the butt of my rifle and filled him full of lead as he lay there, freed the Arachni queen and intimidated Saren into eating a bullet just before deciding to eliminate the council and put the Captain in charge.  I purged Feros, killed the ancient thorian, executed the Asari he had been holding, and brought executioners justice to all others who did wrong.

Good lord were you one evil son of a bitch. Still a fun game playing as a total bastard out of curiosity?

hell yeah!  as far as I can tell you don't get penalized for doing anything horrible.  However, the annoying part is that your allies are fine with whatever you do.  I was expecting Liarra or Tali to freak out over me executing Wrex but they just shrugged it off.

I have to say once you hit level 50 you pretty much roll over anything- it'll be interesting to start a replay with the current career on Insane.

What are you complaining about you just got a shadowrun this game this year!  And it has powers and everything  paranoid
If only it had ladder climbing animations.... Roll Eyes

And, you know, actual RPG elements like the Shadowrun license is actually known for.  Tongue

I installed NWN2 on my brother's new PC with Vista and set the video settings up and now it won't load properly. Anyone know how to reset the settings so I can try again?

if you can't get into NWN2 to set the options I'm guessing your best bet will be uninstalling/re-installing.  Also, if the graphics are screwing up I'd try playing with Shadows turned off.

Virmire was indeed awesome.  Some great choices there, including:

Spoiler for Hiden:
rifle butting Vrex and shooting him to death as he lay on the ground


I finished the game tonight (level 50 at 40 hours), and wow, I'm wondering how they will work out the setup for ME2 with the choices that are thrown at you during the end sequence.  Definitely my number 2 GOTY, with The Witcher being number 1.

61908  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mass Effect Impressions on: December 07, 2007, 04:50:44 PM
OK, time to gear up for the final push.  I have the renegade sidequest to do, and then Virimire (or whatever it's called) plus any associated sidequests, and then I'm guessing it's endgame time.  I'm guessing I'll hit level 50 before it's over- I heard level 60 is the max but I'm not sure how one would get enough XP for that unless the harder difficulties like Insane give you more XP or there's alot more left to the game than I'm expecting.

I don't think they are actually making it.....

I think I mentioned that I did send in my power supply.  They sent back a new power supply.  It appears to be a different model.  It doesn't have a three prong connector, just two.  Otherwise it looks like the old power brick.

They sent a non-grounded power supply? Why the hell would they do that?

yeah, that was the first thing that popped into my mind too.  It's been awhile since I checked, but isn't it a 3 prong plug that goes into the outlet and another 3 prongs that goes into the back of the 360?

Improved auto sign-in to Xbox LIVE with Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter

anyone else happy to see this fix?  i switched to the 360 wireless adapter a couple months ago and have been incredibly annoyed that i never sign in to Live automatically anymore...local profile signs in on its own, but i have to manually log in to Live every time i turn on my 360.  it's a little issue but one i'm really glad to see they've fixed icon_cool

Yep, me too.  Although there was a brief period a few weeks ago when mine was auto logging in, but that has since stopped and I am back to manually logging in everytime.

well, my disappointment over having to manually log in to Live remains...no change with the update, so i still have do it manually every time i turn on the 360.  has anyone else noticed that they actually fixed the issue?

I thought there was an option to do that already.  Did they break it or am I mistaken?
